Critically-acclaimed Tim Ho Wan, possibly the cheapest Michelin-starred restaurant in the world, is a legendary dimsum place in Hong Kong known for its pork buns. The great news is Tim Ho Wan will soon open its doors here in Manila, with a new branch on the upper ground floor of SM Megamall set to start operation soon.
Chef Mak Kwai Pui started serving dimsum at his humble 15-seater restaurant to cater to Hong Kong’s hungry residents. People used to line up for hours just to sample his dishes. Eventually, word of his food got around, earning him global acclaim and his first Michelin star in the 2010 Hong Kong and Macau Michelin Guide. From its humble origins along Kwong Wa street in Mong Kok, Tim Ho Wan later spread its reach by establishing new locations at Sham Shui Po, North Point, and in the IFC Mall at Central. Tim Ho Wan has also branched out internationally, opening a restaurant in Singapore and now, in the Philippines.
